Wandering mind & busy body; Extended time off

I think of a lot to write about while in the shower. Short one or two line tidbits. The problem is that while my mind is free to think and ponder my body is too busy going through the motions of showering to be able to write the thoughts down. The only reason my mind is wandering is because my body is too busy. As soon as my body is no longer busy my mind is no longer wandering. I tend to forget most of what I was thinking about and by that point have to rush off to work. There is very little chance of remembering by evening.

There seems to be a discrepancy with my vacation hours. I normally save a copy of my time off forms but my pay stub says more was taken out than I filed for. I'll see HR or Payroll first thing tomorrow to find out what happened.

A couple of my co-workers (in other groups) scoffed at the idea of taking a whole month off. They both said that after 3 weeks they were biting at the bit to get back to work. While that may be true if I were to stay home the entire time (which would be sort of the point, so that I really want to work again), I only plan on spending 1 to 2 weeks at home. The other 2 to 3 weeks will be out and about. There are some LiveJournalers I want to visit. I'd also like to go out of the country. I'm thinking around the month of May would be a good time. My lease is up the month before so perhaps I can put my stuff in storage and room with someone for a little while.
